Paper Racing Car Projects

Designing and creating paper crafts into three-dimensional objects such as racing cars will often inspire more projects. Displaying the race cars on a paper racetrack, designing customised flags as well as creating a race car display model with different mediums are several crafts that are made using the paper racing car as inspiration.

Customised Paper Race Track

Make a paper racetrack for your kids to display their paper racing cars. Look through different racing magazines for racetrack inspiration for colours, shapes and bleacher positions. Develop a multiple-lane track for each designed race car. For instance, position all the cars in individual lanes at the starting gate. Create a three-dimensional pop-up bleacher by making a paper accordion fold. Colour in extra features such as people in the stands or use magazine cutouts. You will also need to make a paper backing as the base to hold the accordion fold on an angle to create the bleachers. Attach the bleachers to the paper backing base by spraying a light coating of spray adhesive onto one end of the paper fold and hold the accordion fold on an angle to create the bleachers of the finished racetrack.

Customised Paper Racing Car Flags

Design a customised flag for your paper racing car to distinguish its team. For instance, design a logo or graphic that resembles the style of the racing car. As a decorative alternative, customise each flag by adding the racing car number onto the flag design. Choose different textured paper or add embellishments such as rubber-stamped logos to personalise the flags. For instance, create your own special paper flag by adding glitter in specific areas to accent or highlight a feature such as the racing car number or team name. Make sure to cover the areas on the flag you do not want the glitter to appear prior to application.

Display Paper Race Car Model

Mixing different mediums such as paper, card stock and cardboard to create a display paper race car model will give you more options for trims. The weight of the cardboard will prevent the car from collapsing or warping if paint is applied to the surface. The wheels are shaped with the card stock or cardboard and a metallic pen will highlight the wheel's grooves. As a decorative option, colour the individual paper race car parts with felt-tip pens, watercolour pens or markers and adhere the pieces by brushing a light coating of adhesive onto a card-stock race car template. For instance, cut out the paper individual car parts and colour in sponsor-driven logos. Look at photographs of your favourite racing cars and use the pictures as a guide while building your display car model. You will then apply the coloured parts onto the card stock or cardboard to build the display model.
